[011:109] So be not in doubt (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) as to what these people (pagans and polytheists) worship. They worship nothing but what their fathers worshipped before (them). And verily, We shall repay them in full their portion without diminution.
[011:110] Indeed, We gave the Book to Műsâ (Moses), but differences arose therein, and had it not been for a Word that had gone forth before from your Lord, the case would have been judged between them, and indeed they are in grave doubt concerning it (this Qur'ân).
[011:111] And verily, to each of them your Lord will repay their works in full. Surely, He is All-Acquainted with what they do.
[011:112] So stand (ask Allâh to make) you (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) firm and straight (on the religion of Islâmic Monotheism) as you are commanded and those (your companions) who turn in repentance (to Allâh) with you, and transgress not (Allâh's legal limits). Verily, He is All-Seer of what you do.
[011:113] And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allâh, nor you would then be helped.
[011:114] And perform As-Salât (the prayers), at the two ends of the day and in some hours of the night [i.e. the five compulsory Salât (prayers)]. Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds (i.e. small sins). That is a reminder (an advice) for the mindful (those who accept advice).
[011:115] And be patient; verily, Allâh wastes not the reward of the good-doers.
[011:116] If only there had been among the generations before you persons having wisdom, prohibiting (others) from Al-Fasâd (disbelief, polytheism, and all kinds of crimes and sins) in the earth, except a few of those whom We saved from among them! Those who did wrong pursued the enjoyment of good things of (this worldly) life, and were Mujriműn (criminals, disbelievers in Allâh, polytheists, sinners).
[011:117] And your Lord would never destroy the towns wrongfully, while their people were rightdoers.
(V.11:113) The sin of the person who gives refuge or helps a person who innovates an heresy (in the religion) or commits sins. This has been narrated by 'Ali [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu] on the authority of the Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] .
Narrated 'Asim: I said to Anas, "Did Allâh's Messenger [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] make Al-Madinah a sanctuary?" He replied, "Yes, Al-Madinah is a sanctuary from such and such place to such and such place. It is forbidden to cut its trees, and whoever innovates a heresy in it or commits a sin therein, will incur the Curse of Allâh, the angels, and all the people," Then Műsâ bin Anas told me that Anas added, "... or gives refuge to such a heretic or a sinner..." [Sahih Al-Bukhari, 9/7306 (O.P.409)]
A) Narrated Ibn Mas'űd [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu]: A man kissed a woman and then came to Allâh's Messenger [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] and told him of that. So this Divine Revelation was revealed to the Prophet :- "And perform As-Salât (the prayers) at the two ends of the day, and in some hours of the night; [i.e. the five compulsory Salât (prayers)]. Verily, the good deeds remove the evil deeds (small sins). That is a reminder for the mindful." (V.11:114). The man said, "Is this instruction for me only?" The Prophet [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said, "It is for all those of my followers who encounter a similar situation."
[Sahih Al-Bukhari, 6/4687 (O.P.209)]
B) Narrated Abu Dhar [radhi-yAllâhu 'anhu]: Allâh's Messenger [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam] said to me: "(a) Be afraid of Allâh and keep your duty to him wherever you may be. (b) And follow up the evil deeds with the good deeds, (verily) the good deeds remove (blot out) the evil deeds. (c) And (treat) behave with the people in a high standard of character."
(This Hadith is quoted by At-Tirmidhi).
